SATURDAY, JULY 25, 1803.
Ko one who has watched the career of
Got Seymour, from the first day ofhis ap
pointment as Chief Magistrate of New
York State, down to the late riots, and.
compares his official action with his politi
cal antecedents, and his well known sym
pathy with the rebels, will doubt for a mo
ment that he is a traitor both to th£ Ad
ministration and the Republic. From first
to last, he has been the unscrupulous op
ponent of Hr. Lincoln's government,
doing his utmost, on all occasions, to
thwart his projects and cripple the opera
tions of the war; lending his sanctionand
approval to the mad speech and insurrec
tfonaiy projects of the Copperhead party,
daring even to parade the strength of this
parly before the very eyes of the Govern
ment, with a view to intimidate Its coun
*bels and coerce its action, boldly proclaim
ing the doctrine of State Sovereignty,* and
the right of secession, whilst the whole
nation was in arms to resist these perni
cious and traitorous heresies against the
Constitution, and. the of .the
Union.- - >
All these facts, and a hundred others, of
equal enormity, are patent, and will con
stitute wpart of the public indictment
which must bef ore long be preferred against
him, and bring him to trial before the tri
bunals of the country. It is impossible,
that the treasonous acts of this man, in
vested'As he is .with such fearful power
and authority, for good, or for evil, a power
whichjhe has universally exercised hitherto
for theintereste of his party, and the cause
of the rebels, can much longer be permitted
to remain unchallenged, and unpunished.
One would think that the loyal citizens of
the 7great State of New York—-and es
pecially of the Empire city itself—would
have been roused as one mtiti, after his dis
graceful and treacherous conduct daring
the late riots, to demand his removal and
impeachment. So apathetic, however, is
loyalty in that city and State, and in many
Other cities and States, too, alas! that we
do not believe that any action would have
been taken in respect to the unmistakable
complicity of the Governor with the insur
rection and the mob, on that occasion,
if a charge of still graver character, and
proofs of a still more damning treason,
Jiad not been brought against him, subse
quently, by eleven gentlemen connected
with the New York National Guard.
Tins charge, it will be impossible to
another/- It involves the honor of the
State as well ,as the treason of its Chief
Magistrate—and the Government will he
compelled to investigate, it Then there
will be a chance ’of bringing against him
the evidence of his guilt in connection
with the New Yorkriots, and he will have
to show cause why he did not take meas
ures to protect the city, when he was
notified, beforehand the exact time
that the draft was ordered to take place;
why he sent his Adjutant to' Washington,
on the Saturday previous to the riot, to
implore the President to stop the draft,
and let the brutal mob of murderers and
villains, whom he subsequently addressed
as “My noble-hearted friends!” trample
bpon the laws of this great country, and the
authority of the Government; why he him
self was absent from the State when he
knew how imminent,- nay, how absolute,
and certain, were the dreadful riots which
involved that magnificent and proud city
in an indiscriminate massacre, and a gen
eral conflagration; why, when he made
his appearance upon the scene ot these
appalling tragedies, he poured out his soul
in sympathy with the bloody miscreants
who had brought rids horror and ruin
upon the Capital, calling them “Ms
noble friends I” telling them that he had
demanded of the Government the suspen
sion of the draft, demanded that It should
bnmillfttfi itself, and tins tom and dis
tracted, hut still, great and. sublime "Re
public before the American people, and
the scoffing despots of Europe, by confess
ing its terror of a beastly mob, and its
helplessness to execute the laws; why, in
stead of ibfo base and dastardly conduct
he did not throw upon them the small
State militia forces, and sweep them into
annihilation at the mouth of the cannon;
why he withheld these forces, kept them
altogether from the seen® of conflict and
left a mere handful of brave policemen,
regulars, and marines, and the * Provost
Guard, to deal with them at such tre
mendous oddst
He -mil have to answer these grave
eharges, and they will be a terrible supple
mentary evidence of his, treason and bis
guilt, when be is arraigned upon the still
graver charge already preferred against
•him nf organizing a regiment of the New
Todc National Guard in each Assembly
District, for the express, and premeditated
purpose ol using them forcibly against the
Government, to resist the draft iu that
State. "We have had many specimens of
treason during this war.but it was reserved
for Governor Seymour to put the climax
of audacity and rebellion upon these infa
mous examples. TVe forbear, at present,
to remark fur her upon this monstrous act
of aggression, and treachery against the
Republic, perpetratedby the Chief Magis
trate of the Empire State, for thepurpose
Of ruining the Government, and helping
the rebels. Our issue of yesterday con

conspiracy ; -with, the names and rank of
the Governor’s accusers, and we wait tor

In l)ifl address to the Copperheads of
Ohio, Tallandigham says:
“If thin civil wtr Is to terminate only in
the subjugation or submhol'a of the South
to force nod arms, the Infmt of to-day'Witt
not live to sec the end of it. ho; la another
trnv only can it be brought to a closm Tra
veiling & thousand nilleo aucl mprCy lbroo 3 u
neatly one-half of the Confederate6ta.es. and
sojourning for a time as -widely different
Txilnts, 1 mot not one man, woman, or cuua
who was not resolved to perish' rather than
yield to the pressure of arms even In the most
dcspcrate'eatremlty.’’ -
This opinion -was based on conversations
had with the rebel leaders. He found an
echo of his own preconceived notions. He
was glad to be thus fortified in the opin
ions he advanced when proclaiming trea
son in Ohio. But he is the last person to
whom a Union “ man, woman or child,”
would confess their-attachment to the old
Union, well knowing that betrayal would
he the result. Vallandigham’s interview
with the rebels were at a time when they
were buoyant with hope of victory. Lee
had invaded Pennsylvania with evety
prospect of capturing Baltimore; Philadel
phia and ■Washington—as they thought,
and as Tallandigham hoped. Johnston had
fallen on the rear of Grant’s , army, they
fenpposed, and they were confident that
thus caught between Pemberton and John
ston his army would he captured and de
stroyed. A like fate they fondly imagin
ed, awaited Banks’ army. Bragg
was sure to crush out Eosecrans,
and in abort everything look
ed rosy and prosperous for the rebel
cause, when Tallandigham;was enjoying
their hospitality and sympathy. But the
lace of affairs have changed. Since
then the rebels have sustained a scries of
crushing defeats, costingjthem not less
than 91,000 men in killed, wounded and
prisoners; upwards of 120,000 muskets
and 800 pieces of artiileiy. If he would
return to his rebel friends he would meet
fewer •“men, women and Children re
“ solved to perish rather than yield to the
“ pressure of Union arms,” than when he
saw tbpm before.
But because the Union people of Dixie
did not choose to make Tallandigham a
infident in no wise dissipates the fact
■t they exist in great numbers. Recent
SlopmSats.-in . North Carolina prove
wreful party in that State are for
willing to come back on
' J£Bialisnancipation of their
■■;s of Kortli Carolina
clicrisli a sincere attaclunent to the old
Union, and not a few Democrats of the
monntain districts are of the same mind.
On the receipt of the news of the cap
ture of Port Hudson and Vicksburg the
Union men of New Orleans illuminated
the city and had a monster torchlight pro
cession of miles in length. When Cot
Saunders made his last raid into East Ten
nessee along the very route which VaUah
digbam traveled a few days previously, he
found more demonstrative loyalty, more
unequivocal, general and unselfish devo
tion to the cause of the Union, than in any
other part of the conntiy, not excepting
the’ Northern States, that he has visited
during the war. Men, women and child
ren cheered him on his way, with such
emotion, that he says he was at rimes re
minded of the scenes he had witnessed at
camp meetings. Yallandigham was not in
a position, and was not the person, to see
anything of Southern Unionism, nor did
hewanttoseeit. There are none so blind
as those who will not see.

f3V John Morgan has been interfering
greatly with the appointments of Geoige E,
Pngb, to address the peace Democracy of
Ohio. He has just been ahead of Mr. Pngb
at or near Waverly, Portsmouth. Pomeroy,
Jackson, McArthur and Logan. Now, as Mr.
Pugh declines to discuss war matters, con
sidering them ot secondary importance, and
quite incidental to something which Mr. P.
calls “personal liberty,” It Is certainly very
improper in Morgan to go about interfering
with his liberty of speech. Perhaps if Mr.
Fogh could have addressed Morgan's gang on
the impolicy of arbitrary arrests, and the in
significance of the war, he might have conver
ted them; who knows? We suppose the
difficulty was, Morgan's personal liberty was
in danger from the persistent proximity of
Hcbson, at the head of a large party of “Lin
coln's minions.'*

spoken of the peace organs and exponents of
Vullandighamism, denounces any attempt to

“the military hoof” of an Abolition despot
hm. Cf course, any thing that tends to the
preservation of order and the enforcement of
law, is despotic in these days, when States
must be permitted to introduce political
amuck j into the Government, and unbridled
license given to a cruel and destructive mob.

Taxation, -
[From the Boston Journal, July SIsUJ
As our people have got hereafter to look
the qutelion of taxation squarely in the face,
it is interesting to learn what on? neighbors
over the water ore doing to meet their yearly
expenses. They require, to meet Govern*
meat expenses in England, over £70,000,000
or £150,000.000 per year.
. The yearly expenses of the army arc about
$75,000.000: tbe yearly expenses of the navy
arc about $60,000.000: and miscellaneous ex
penses $40,000,000.' Then there i« the inter
est on the KationalDebt, which debt amounts
now to about $4,000,000,000.
This would seem to be a sufficiently heavy
burden to carry, bat the people of England
manage to cany it with considerable ease.
The statesmen of England have shown great
sagacity in managing so to distribute thi* tax
ation as not to depress her industry.
It is estimated that the tax is paid by the
three classes in about the following propor
tions: '

Astonishing Discoveries' of Gold,
[From Our Special Correspondent.]
Gbeat Salt Lake Citt, f
July let, 186$. f
Having lately visited the Bannock Gold
Mines, and spent a fortnight in that vicinity,
I give yon the result of my observations, for
the benefit of your readers.
The Bannock Mines, so called, are near the
centre of the present Territory of Idaho,
about 400 miles north of this city, and derive
their name, not from the Bannack Mountain,'
which is 250 miles this side of tho mines, hut
from the Bannock tribe of Indians, who roam
over that, portion of the country. These
mines are oh Grasshopper Creek, a tributary
of Jefferson’s Fork of the Missouri River,
and are in latitude 45 deg. 40 or 50 min., and
in longitude about 118 deg. west from Green
wich, or 80 from Washington.
Bannock City is a flourishing town at the
mines, and when I was there, abont a month
ago, contained about two thousand inhabi
tants. It has probably lour thousand by this
time, as an immense, emigration was at that
time pouring in. During five days, whilst we
were returning, wc met ninety-eight wagons
on the way, they all having left the California
route at Fort Bridget, and having, crossed
Snake River at the ferry near Fort Halt
There was the due proportion of horsemen
and footmen, with some packers and loose
nr.imalft. it was estimated that at least 590
persons accompanied these wagons. Most of
them were from Colorado—the eastern emi
gration being mostly yet on the road coat of
Snake River. The advance of this emigra
tion, some fifteen or twenty wagons, were,
among those referred to. They were from
lowa and Missouri.
From this city to the mines there is one of
the best natural roads in the world. There is
no section of road of equal length between
this place and the Missouri River that can
compare with it—so few bad places, and so
few difficult crossings of streams. Wood,
water and grass arc abundant at the camping
places, with bat one or two exceptions.
The route lies for the most part through a
mountainous country. The only exceptionis
Snake Hirer valley or plain, along which the
road runs for aboat sixty miles, and the divide
Ibcuce to the mountains, some thirty or forty
more, about one hundred mites in aIL This
whole valley is covered with volcanic rock,
exhibiting the appearance of having been one
vast lava plain.
In going Com this city yon cross two nota
ble divides; one between the head waters of
the Post >'euf and other tributaries of Snake
Hirer, or Lewis’ Folk of the Colombia, and
the head water* of streams flowing into Salt
Lake; the other between the beau waters of
the Missouri, and of tributaries of Snake
‘ Hirer.
As to the mines themselves, their richness
is fully established, but. not their extent. So
Jar as known, their area was quite limited, ex
tending about live mites only on the creek.
New mines were being discovered, however.
The best of the new discoveries was on the
Stinking "Water, another tributary of Jeffer
son Fork, about seventy-five miles east of
Bannock City, and some thirty or forty miles
westerly from the Three Forks of the Missouri
By the way, a town has been laid out at the
Three Forks, and that locality is attracting
considcrablealteutlon. BesiUcsbclug in close
proximity to the new miues on the Stinking
Water and at other places, it is said to be a
good farming country, and to have a climate
equal to that of California; Gallatin, the new
city, promises soon to become known to fame
The mines at Bannock City were first dis
covered In August lost. Considerable gold
was taken out during last fall and winter, but
the mines worked at great disadvantage, and
it was not until the present season that much
regular mining was done. The operations of
this season were also much delayed for want
of water with which to do the sluicing. There
is now an abundant supply of water,brought
in thiee ditch e.-, which run along the moun
tain side, and have been constructed at con
siderable expense. One oi them is about ten
miles long, and cost nearly thirty thousand
dollars. Tor the conception and successful
completion of this cnteiprl&e, the people of
Banned; are indebted principal!.* to the saga
city, energy and perseverance of George Cop
ley, Efq., who commenced and continued to
prosecute the work under mmy discouraging
circumstances, but has finally brought it 10 a
snccefsfnl result. The water was let Into it
about the Ist of June.
Many mouths’ labor had been expended by
thi miners, taking out and piling up “pjy
dirt,” which was awaiting the completion of
thisdltch. Since the “ water has come,” these
piles ore yielding up their shining deposits
very freely, ai.d the misers are now qulckiy
repaid for their weeks and months of toil.
The statistics of these mines 1 did not un
dertake to get. us they arc like till others—
sonic poor, ethers middling, some very rich.
1 could tell you big stories of the gold taken
cut, but it would be the old story, after all,
as everybody kuowa that wherever the earth
jlclds This metal at all, it is liable to be, and
generally if, very, plentiful in some places.
The difficulty is, to find those places, or to
purchase access to them after they have been
found by others
I was present at the “cleaning »p ** of one
day’s slnicirgat one of the mires—something
btr cr than the average. It was owned by two
young men, who, sirarge to say, were iu this
caso the c-riitunil discoverers. It was in that
portli n of the mines called “ JJagget Hill.”
they had about $250 cf gold, S4O of which
was in liur nuggets. The gold is very purs,
and Is said to assay from nineteen to twenty
dollars to the onnee. It is used aa currency
thereat $lB. These young mm had a pile of
Ciil estimated to contain $2,000, and which
they would wash out in about eight days.
They had epeht two mouths taking out the
dirt. It required four men to do thosluiciag,
ancthe water cost them $7 50 per day. Tne
tti result cf this mine would be about $2,000
f,r the wages cf one man for five mouths—
not in greenbacks.
It is hard to tell what the average of these
mines is, but it must be more than $3 per day
to each maztcmployed, as that U the current
w rues of- day-laborers. Carpenters get SO.
Seme-were complaining that they could
make nothing, but arch had poor claims, and
*ei c unwilling to work by the day. It Is Use
less for poor men, who are too proud to work
at days’ wages, to come to such places. But
to fur as joy observation extended, ever? one
who was willing to work to the best advan
tage, and who was steady, temperate and in
dustrious, did wclh The country Is healthy,
as are all cf these mountainous regions. A
man without nuans, coming to these mines,
should expect to stay two or three years, as
it will take all of his net earnings the first
yeortobuy a good mine. After that, with
rrnecrably gocu luck, he can make money.
So much for the bar mines and surface dig
gings. A word as to the quartz lodes, or
lode, os there was but one which had been de
•\elopcd to any extent, out of foi ty or fifty
cltdcu d to have been discovered.
The “Dakotuh Lode,’* 60-called. is fully es
tablished as a quartz gold lode of cxtraotdi
-1 ary richness. It was first diecovercd on the
10th cf Novembtr. by four men, who were
prospecting ou the tide wf a hill They found
burnt or rotten quartz, so-called, coming to
the surface, which appeared to be rich iu g -Id.
Ihry washed some of the dirt lying about the
quartz, aid found it to yield 25 cent to $1 00
tie.pan. They then sunk a shaft, in which
tl c-y found, from the surface downward, de
cr burnt quartz, from which gold could
he washed by Land. The four discoverers,
according to mining custom, were allowed to
pro cc.pt 100- feet each, on thU lode,'
besides the original discovery, making
five hurdred- feel in all. Their claims
were designated as ihc Original Discovery,
ui:d No. 1 and 2 east, and 1 and 2 nest of the
tiae. In a lew weeks these claims changed
hands, and the new owners commenced regu
larndiiirg operations. First, os the. weather
was cold, by drawing the quart* dirt to the
ojflerent cabins, and washing It by nans. Iu
this way the different owners, in a short time,
realize a senior,COO; tome men averaging SBO
per day for several days in succession. They
then setup four small rockers, and heated
w&tcrinaumk to prevent it from freezing.
■Withthese rockers they washed oat $4,700 la
two weeks. This was afterwards increased to
some $7,000 or SB,OOO. The supply of dirt
then partially failed, the rock becoming
harder as they proceeded in depth. All this
was cn the original Ciscoviry claim of 100
fiet, In the meantime the gold had been
struck at another opening in claim No. 1
west. The quartz crevice seemed to ran
southeast and northwest, or. rather south of
cast and north ol west. This being the reverse
if the usual course, many old miners conten
ded that the lead ran the other way, andmnch
prospecting was done in a cross direction, and
new leads “at cross purposes** wererccorded.
This was continued even after the gold bear
ing quailz bad been struck' in claim No. 5
west, and claims were recorded intersecting
No. sat right angles. This controversy was
continued until some time in January, when
the quartz was found exceedingly rich In
claim No. 6 west, ou thcDakotah Lode, This
was a bomb-shell in the camp of the cross
miners, and they all surrendered, when a few
weeks ago the gold was found in No. 9 west,
oi the dficoveiy following the original direc
tion of the Dakotah Lode, with a blight turn,
in nearly a westerly course. The lode has
been traced 900 feet, and is considered fully
established. In No. 9, the gold is found about
foriy feet below, the surface in Iron ore, or
“ buck iron,** as it Is called la Colorado. It
is much like the ore taken from the iron
mountain near Marquette, and would yield
probably SO to 40 per cent pure iron. It is
interspersed with five particles ol gold,plainly
visible, aud this is disseminated so evenly,
that it appears in all the broken pieces of the
rock, though they may be no larger than the
end cf the finger. This kind of rock is prin
cipally confined, thus far, to.No. 9. The vein
seems to show mere Iron the deeper.they go;
this leads some to conjecture that it will, ran
to silver. „
From some of these claims, large quanti
ties of rock hare been taken out, which are
awaiting the action of quartz mills. None of
these are jet in operation. One was already
there, and others on the way.
By the politeness of A. Murray, esq , owner
of the undivided half of No. 6 west, Dakotah
Lode, which is considered the richest claim. I
visited the mine, and was let down the exca
vation, about thirty feet: The crevice isplain
ly marked in this mine. It is some eight or
ten feet wide, and dips down towards the bot
tom of the hill, the general direction.of the
crevice being cast and west. The wall rock Is
of granite, some of which presents a burnt
appearance, and is of a greyirh color. Mr.
Murray took off from the quartz rock, in my
presence, a large number of pieces of quartz,
showing the gold to the eye. Several of these
he gave me. One of them, as large as my fist,
was exceedingly rich, having a sort, of jet or
ridge of gold, as large as the upper end of my
pencil, running along the quart*, something
like the sliver found in pieces of copper, in
the mines of Lake Superior. Mr. M. took
from one piece of quartz weighing nine
pounds, £14,-58, after crushing by band. Oa
another occasion, whilst, working the mine,
he carried on his back to the river, about one*
fourth of a mDe, seventeen sacks of the dust
or “pay dirt,” which came from this brittle
quartz, and washed from it S4OO.
■This statement Is corroborated by Amos W.
. Hall, Esq., formerly of St. Paul, who assisted
in washing the dirt. Mr. Hall is well known
by citizens of St. Paul, and is entirely reliable.
In this claim the gold first appeared about
eighteen feet below the surface, and the shaft
has been continued about twelve feet deeper,
the gold quartz being found In abundance all
the way, and richer as they descend. The gold
is found in decayed quartz, of various colors,
and of all degrees of consistency, some por
tions being hard, and others very soft and
brittle, ana much of it is so rich that when
pulverized it yields as ounce to the pound.
These claims, within the 900 feet developed,

As much confusion exists in the public
mind, relative to the mines of Idaho, I will
state that the Poise Mines are on the Boise
•River, a tributary of Snake River, several hun
dred miles from Bannock, southwesterly, and
the Salmon Mines are on the Salmon River.
200 miles north of the Boise Mines, and about
tie same distance west of Bannock City. The
road to Poise and Salmon leaves the Bannock
road at Snake River Ferry.
The agricultural resources of Idaho are yet
undeveloped, but I believe them to be good,
if resort be had to Irrigation, which can be
c«sPv and cheaply practised. Timber Is tole
rably plenty. C. B.- Waite.

The Rlasonic Imbroglio.
Joliet, July 23, 1863.
Editors Chicago Tribune:
In your issue cf yesterday was an article
headed “Masonic Imbroglio,” which was evi
dently written nnder mistaken view® of the
power of Grand Master Blair.
Having occupied the position of Grand Mas
ter of tldsSiate, for three years, and foryeara
a member of the Committee on Masonic Ju
risprudence In our Grand Lodge, I assureyou
that the power assumed by Grand Master
Blair is in direct violation of our Constitution.
The attempted removal of the Grand Secre
tary, by the Grand Muster, Is an unheard of
net in Masonry, Is revolutionary in its ten
dency, and strikes at the very foundation of
our Order. The Grand Muster possesses no
such power.
But this is but one act of a series of his to
wards the Craft. He has assumed the will of
an absolute monarch, and is repeatedly vio
luting the Constitution and laws of our Grand
Lodge, evidently with a purpose of creating
revolution, and ruining the Order iu this State.
Tre evident slur upon Bro. Reynolds, that the
Grand Muster was uneasy at the proceedings
of the Grand Secretary, Is undoubtedly true,
firo. Reynolds publishes a Masonic journal,
and hua noticed some of the illegal acts of the
Grand Muster. TblsJs the cause of his unea
siness, and not the Seances, as was unjustly
hinted in the article of yesterday. Bro. Rey
nolds has occupied his presint position for
twelve years, and a more faithful, honest aud
Industrious Secretary cannot be found iu the
United States.
I will net attempt to notice the idea of the
Giand Master having jirciogalives. It is too
absurd to tall; about an elective officer, whose
dutiis are clearly defined in our Constitution,
and who is but the executive officer of the
Grand Lodge, having prerogatives, 1 ask you
to publish this i s an act of justice to the (Jrufc,

Death of Major Daniel McCook.
The whole country hears with profound re
gret the intelligence of the death of Major
Daniel McCook, the well known father of so
many distinguished soldiers in tbe loyal ser
vice, from a wound received while leading a
militia band in a skirmish, near Baffiagton,
with Morgan’s raiders.
Major McCook, up to the outbreak of the
war, belonged to the conservative school of
politicians, and la the last Presidential Elec
tion was a very active member of the*Breck.
inridge party. .Upon the fall of Fort Sumter,
he, like tens of thousands others .of similar
creed, with all his sons, at once became the
most enthusiastic, active, and self sacrificing
supporters of the war for the preservation of
the Union.
The record mode by the McCooks in the
war is, and always will be, a part of the histo
ry cf the country. At the time of the first
battle of Bull Run, live of the Major’s sons
—Robert, Alexander, Daniel, Edward, and
Charles—were in the army. In that unfortu
nate action the youngest and last mentioned,
a piivote in the Ist Ohio wa? mortally wound
ed, ard died in the arms of his father. As a
second cacrificc of his blood upon the altar of
his country,the latter had to lament last sum
mer the loss oi Robert, the particulars of
whose cruel death must be still fresh in the
recollection of our readers Of the surviving
ones, Alexander is now aMajor General, com
manding tbc 30th corps in the army of the
Cumberland; Daniel, Colonel of the 53d
Ohio, commanding a brigade ia the same
amij; and Edward, Colonel of an Illinois
regiment. The latter distinguished himself In
Grant’s campaign in Mississippi, aud is now
recovering from a wound received ia one of
the battles fought on the march to Vicksburg.
Since last full, the youngest of the sons, Johu,
it also in tbc army, ana is now serving on the
stuff cl General Crittenden. The oldest,
George McCook, the well-known lawyer, like
wise rendered good service for some mouths,
while temporarily commanding a regiment In
.West Virginia.
Not content with thus giving all of six
sens to the country, tbo venerable head of the
family*, with unbounded patriotism, himself
shouldered a rifle, joined his sous at various
pr inis of the theatre of war, and fought the
common enemy in person whenever oppor
tunity offered. At Bull Run, on the Upper
Potomac, in Western Virginia, and before
Corinth, tbe commanding figure, white head,
line trusty gud of the tearless old man ap
peared conspicuously iu onr front. Ever
since the death of Charles and Robert, he was
moved with a spirit of personal vengeance
against those who had slain his sons, and,
under its impulses, he was led to the conflict
in which he met, at la>t, his gallant cod.
Let all h- mage be rendered to the memory
of the model patriot!

Mfjor W. 11. Medlll, ot the Bth Illinois Cav

The deceased was a brother of Joseph Me

on to minister to his comfort, and was with
him during the closing scene.
The deceased was twenty-seven years old, a
native cf Massillon, Stark county, Ohio. Be
was a p]inter by trade. He was foreman iu
the Forest City daily newspaper published iu
this city by his brother Joseph, and after
wards held a similar position ou the Leader,
fit left Cleveland iu 1855, for Chicago, where
he has since resided, being identiiled with the

lion he continued in the service
till his death. He took part in all the battles
of the Peninsula, often in command of his
regiment, (when his superiors were absent by
reason of sickness and wounds,) and al ways
lead it gallantly in battle.
He was an honorable, noble man, a brave
and gallant oflicer, and in his death society
and the service lose one of the very best spec

atrocious rebellion, fills a patriot’s grave..

The Gloom ot the Rebel Con*
[From tbe Louisville Democrat, July 22.]
Rebel sympathizers. here have said within
tbc last two days, that the prospects of the
Confederacywere never brighter than at
present.” If they think so, they are the in
sanest beings this side of the moon. They
wtuld, in u moonless and starless and lamp
loss midnight, swear That the sun was shining
in midheaven with glorious effulgence.
Wcask'he attention of all, the disloyal
and the loyal, to the extracts' given in our
special dispatches on the first page of the
Jouruul from the chlet organs of tne rebel
Coifed* racy. Those extracts show that a
gloom as thick and black as Dante’s Inferno
or Satan’s Inferno has settled upon the rebel
mind. The organs still talk desperately
nbentlightingasTongas any human beings
arc Hit in the South; but undoubtedly the
human beings themselves will, hare
scmelldrg to -say. upon this interest
ing subject. The organs, as the reader
will see, recognize a strong disposition on the
I ait of a portion of-the people'to end the.
dreadful war and their own dreadful, suffer
ings by coming: back into the Union, and as
suredly that disposition, in spite of the vio
lent threats cf a feeble government and its
feebler newspapers, will increase and spread
and strengthen until its end shall be accom
plished. Rebel editors and officeholders may
tell ns that the Southern people, rather thin
sect pt a return of the old condition of glori
ous prosperity, will flee with their wives .and
children to caves in the rocks and mountains,
or iutc/hcllou-trees and logs, and starve to
death or subsist upon roots and blackberries,
but only fools will regard such miserable fool
ishness. Why, the worst’ rebel among us
will lake an oath us big as a mountain rather
than live one week upon the respectable fare
of onr hi Uitary Prison.
The President of the rebel Confederacy, it
appears, in view of the terrible condition of
the Cot fcdcracy’s affairs, has it sued his pro
clamation that nil persons between Certain
ages must join the Confederate army imme
diately, and that, if they shall neglect to do
so, they will, for that simple neglect, be
treated se deserters—that is, they will be shot.
Oh, how onr rebel sympathizers in Kentucky
and other loyal Siatcs must now wish that
the rebel authority extended over them, so
that, instead cf the enrollment, against which
they are ready' to take up arms, they would
have the blessed privilege of choice whether
to go into Lac army without either enrollment,
or draft, or be shot us felons! This new and
horrible form of conscription will avail the
rebel authorities very little, for there Is very
little material upon which it can operate. Its
only important effect must be to break up all
the avocations of life In tbc South, and thus
hasten the advent of the llethless skeleton of
famine. It can scarcely begin to replace the
•more than eighty thousand officers and sol
diers killed, and disabled, and taken prisoners
witMn the list two mouths. It is evidence of
.despair, and it will spread and deepen despair
and mhery. They, who, nnderullthe circum
stances, encourage and endeavor to enforce
the holding out ot the rebellion, deserve that
the walls and shrieks of their millions of
victims should ring in their ears through all
Heavy Robbery at Rocliexter,
N. V. —A. Railroad Passenger

[From the Rochester (N. Y.) American, July 22,]
A robbery was perpetrated at the Central
depot last evenirg, on the arrivid of the 7:50
express train from tbe cast, which for magni
tude and audacity surpasses anything of the
kind in our local records.
The victim ot the transaction Is Mr. George
R. Rutter, a citizen of Memphis, Tennessee,
who, with his wife, child, and a female colored
servant, was returning from a visit to Sara
toga nnd New York. He had in his posses
sion SIO,COO in Kentucky, Missouri, Georgia,,
and South Carolina currency, and $>,200 in
gold. All of lids money was contained in a
small tack, which lay upon one of the seats
occupied by Mr. R. and his party.
■When the train halted ia the depot, as
usual, one of the employes* patsed through
the car notifying the passengers that the rear
cars would be switched off, &c. Ho was fol
lowed up closely by another man, who, on
passing the scat, seized the sack, which was
exposed, said rushed out. Mr. Rutter Instantly
followed, bat amid the rush aud confusion
lest sight of the thief, who proudly imngled
with the crowd and made his escape.
Officer Sherman was notified, and the p-Ticc
were put on tbc alert, bat up to a late hou*
1.0 arrests had been made.
The sack containing the money was marked
bgibly with the owner's name,-George-B.
Butter, oi the Him of S. D. McClure & Go.,
Memphis. The sack, which is made of oil
cloth,.is eight inches long by ten broad. Be
sides the money, it contained a well-worn
pecket book filled with papers and memo
randa. The gold amounted to about $3,200,
consisting of 530 pieces. Mr. Butter author
izes us to say, that ho will pay a reward of
SI,OOO for the recovery of the money.
As to the identity of the thief, nolblogsatls
factory is known. The servant states that
a man who got aboard the train at Syracuse
sat near, the party, and eyed the bag very
closely. Mrs. Butter fell asleep, and ne ap
proached to offer a coat to place uuder her
bead, but it was declined. Not supposing
that the contents of tire satchel were suspect

Falling of the Wall of tlu Eighteenth
Ward Station Houmjld k C iv York.
[From the N. Y. Herald, July'*ji]
One of the most frightful accldcnUthat has
occurred in this city for a long perhd, took
place in East Twenty-Second street, about
noon yesterday, and resulted in the death of a
great. number of children, and U is fared
about 1 six - or seven grown people. \
It will be remembered that during the late
disturbances in the city tb» Eighteenth Ward
station bouse, situated in Twenty-Second St.,
Jietw ecu Pirn. , and Second avenues, was sot
■fire to by the populace and completely de
stoyed. The house of Engine uo. No. 51,
•situated next door to, the station house, was
likewise consumed In the conflagration, and
all that was left of the two buildings was a
heap of bricks, mortar, iron and pieces of
limber, besides the two side walls and a por
tion of the front walls, which were kept m au
upright position by the slightest support im
Among the ruins was the usual quantity of
smashed wood, suitable for fuel, and this, os
isusual iu all such cases, was much sought
after by the poor people of the neighborhood.
It is said'that there was also a large amount
of. coal stowed away in the cellar, which served
as an additional temptation to the people.
Notwithstanding the very dangerous condition,
in which the side walls were threatened every
moment to tumble agaiust the house inimme
diate proximity, no steps, our. reporcer was
told, were taken to provide agalnst the occur
rence of a dreadful accident like that which
occurred yesterday.
It is said that ever since the burning of the
buildings, hundreds of men, women and chU*.
dien have been allowed to run at large about
the ruins every day, picking up scraps of
wood, coal, iron, &c. Prudent persons living
in the vicinity had cautioned the people re
peatedly not to go among the ruins, lest the
walls should fall upon and bury them alive.
But these warnings, as might have been ex
pected, were entirely unheeded, and the con
sequence is a most frightful accident.
Yesterday the ruins were visited, as usual,
by a crowd of women and children, who were
very busily engaged in picking up coal and
loose pieces of wood. A violent storm of
wind—one of the strongest, while it lasted,
that has visited us in sometime —was blow
ing from the southwest at the time. Occa
sionally loose pieces of brick were "blown
down from the wails upon the.moss of rash
people assembled together below. But even
this warning passed unnoticed; By and by
the fury of the storm made such un Impres
sion upon the walls . that people standing
aloof observed unmistakable signs that the
walls were certainly about to .tumble'over.
The children and grown persons were called
upon to vacate the ruins la all baste, and at
last seemed to realize the danger of their posi
tion, for they began to scamper away as fast'
as possible. But the knowledge of peril came
too late, A powerful gust then
struck against the party wall between the sta
tion house and the fire engine building. The
wall rooked to and fro, like a mere straw be
fore the wino, and in another instant down it
caxiiO with a terrific force upon those of the
wood gatherers whobadnot succeeded iu get
ting out in time. A part of the wall fell
.upon another engine Louse next door to the
house of No. 51, and the force was so great
that a portion of the roof and wall was driven
in. - -
. The scene which - followed this awful catas
trophe may be more readily imagined than
described.,.. Host of those burled in the ruins
were little boys and, girls, from seven years
of age up to eighteen.
The occurrence was witnessed by a great
number of people, and a cry of horror broke
from every one iu the crowd, almost at one'
moment. Several women and even men faint
ed away. An Immense crowd of spectators
was soon attracted to the scene. Mothers and
fathers, In search of their children, formed a
very large proportion, of the excited throng,
ami U is impossible to depict the.agonizing
condition of such "parents. The shrill cry.of
mothers for their little ones, mingled with the
hoarse Inquiries of fathers and brothers, and
the excited exclamations of tbc crowd rushing
to lend their assistance, made up a scene of
the most heart-rending Interest
The first one to venture Into the ruins after
the fall of the walls was.a poor old man,
whose only son was
under the piles of brick aud mortar. The
w hole cf the party wall had not at this time
tumbled over. The old man, doubtless not
observing this fact, incautiously rushed for
ward in an agony of excitement, when, horri
ble to relate, the remaining portion of the
wall fell upon his head, crushing out life in
Tbc next moment a number of the Eigh
teenth ward police, aided by* a body of labor
ing men living in the neighborhood, were at
work raking through the bricks and rubbish,
In order to extricate the bodies of the killed
ard wauidcd. The police made the most
superhuman exertions and are entitled to
the thanks of the public. With pickaxes,
crowbars, shovels, ike, they worked away,
casting Into the street piles of bricks, mortar,
timber, iron, ccal, &e. The cries and moans
of tbc unfortunate sufferers could be plainly
heard in the midst cf all the excitement, and
this, cf course, was an incentive to make tbo
men work all the harder. .People who saw
the wall falling, estimated the number of
persons butica as between twenty five and
Eleven bodies were recovered to-day, seven

We have some intelligence from the North
this morning, fir more welcome and much
more important than foreign intervention.
The peace meetings in New York, so bitterly
ridiculed by the unthinking—those safe par
allels by which the anti-war people of the
Noith werc workfogYhla open resistance to
Lincoln’s Government —have home their
fruit. The white flag has been suddenly low
ered, and the red battle-flag now waves in
New York over streets wet with ■ the gore of
Lincoln’s hated minions. This grand move
ment in New York is Wf the precursor of *
series of similar-outbreaks. -Already-hate
riots followed in Hartford, Conn., and New

from the West. These demonstrations may,,
and doubtless will, be put down by- the iron
hand of lie military, but there.wiil be no en
forcement of the draft after quiet Is restored.
These people have elected to die in the streets
rather than submit to the hateful tyranny of
and have proved themselves in ear
pouring out their blood.
They ha\«, shown a spirit - which Lincoln,
too glad to see snb«da«, will never again
rouse. Already he is before it, acd

men to spare, and we may very safely con
clude that the days os well as- the soldiers of
the Union army are numbered. -There -will
be no addition to its strength, and it is con
fer sed on all hands; that the present-Yankee
force under arms can never begin to subdue
the Confederacy. Let us have more of these
outpourings—a few more great cities on the
mourner’s bench—some- more gutting and
sacking of houses, and hanging and mutilat
ing of men. It saves the Confederate troops
a deal of marching and lighting, and lops off
many a dreary month oi this winter. The
sacking and burning has beau heretofore at

Riot, murder and conflagration have began
In New York. It is a world’s wonder that
this good work did not commence long ago;
and this excellent outbreak may be the open
ing scene of the Inevitable revolution which
is to take to pieces that most rotten society,'
and leave the Northern half of the old Ameri

But all this may -have little-or no effect on
the war, at least for a long time. Let us not
deceive ourselves; for internal revolution and
even utter ruin in a nation by no means',
weakens it for foreign aggression, of which
revolutionary France is a notable example.
The news is cheering to ns. Indeed, because it
portends the breaking down of the whole

Tire fact that no telegrams have been re
ccivedin the city from Charleston during tbe
week, bos led croakers to give forth the
mournful predictions of the u impemiiog
fall” of that place with stupid pertinacity;
They were quite sure that the Government
1 bad news of terrible import, which it refused
;to divulge. We have from, the Charleston
papers a partial answer to these jeremiads.
The Yankees are busy os beavers on Morris
island, but Charleston haa not fallen yet. On
Monday, two wooden gunboats commenced
shelling battery "Wagner. The three Honi ors
'which were Tying behind a point near the*
lower end of Morris Island, kept very quiet
throughout the day,. Our batteries (Gregg
and Wagner) and Fort Sumpter responded
slowly and at long intervals to the • enemy’s
fire. One shot from Sumter is reported to
have struck tbe enemy’s observatory, erected
‘on Ct&ig’e Hill, Morris Island. The Yankees
have an immense derrick, and are reported
placing more guns In position, fortifying
Craig’s Hill, ana also Black’s Island, between
Morris and James Island, of which they are
leported In possession.
The Governor of South Carolina has jssued
a proclamation calling for 8,000 negroes to
work on the fortifications. He says the need
for them Is pressing. The Charleston Courier
tbisks the city is in Immiuent peril, and to
save It tbe Yankees must be driven off Morris
Island. From an interesting editorial In that
paper cn the “situation,” we make the fol
lowing extracts:
We mean not* either to censure our mili
tary authorities or to dictate or embarrass
• heir movements. On the contrary, onr hon
est and earnest desire and purpose ore to en
couiage, stimulate, strengthen, and sustain
them. With all proper deference andrcspcct,
then, wc say to t Bern that our people are fully •
up to the exigency,of the times, and Bt*nd
tcady, at any and every hazard and cost, to
second them in a brave and determined effort
to drive tbe enemy back into the ocean from
theirstrongbolds onMorrisand Folly Islands
if the safety ofCharleston be involved in such
a movement, there should be no hesitation in
making tbe attempt. Let us do all that may
become men whose liberties and lives, whose
homes aud altars, and all taat Is Is dear to
them, as fathers, brothers and husbands, are
staked on this momentous kbue. .
The fall of Charleston involves conse
quences which Wo shudder to contemplate.
With her capture the whole State would soon
he at the mercy cf the foe, and the great cause
of Southern independence would be put in
featful jeopardy. Nothing but a guerilla war
faieforthc eoutheru and southwestern por
tion of the Confederacy, if not for Its whole
extent, would then be left us, in manifestation
ot cur undying aud unconquerable determi
nation never to submit to Yankee rule. Let
up, then, resolve to defend our beloved and
time-honored city to the last extremity. First
let us make every. possible human effort
to wrest the adjacent Islands from the
enemy, and enable Sumter and onr other
Lorbor fortress, with our steam rams to keep
the vandals at bay. Falling in this, and even
should Sumter become untenable, then let ns
resolve on a Saragossa defense of onr city,
manning and defending every wharf—fighting
from street to street, and house to house—
and, if filling to achieve success, yielding noth
ing but smoking ruins and mangled bodies as
the spoil of the ruthless conqueror.
Should Charleston fill, life will be no lon
ger worth living; let us then freely peril life
in her defense, and resolutely devote her to
destruction sooner than yield beruadcmol

ferent policy—wc were once for capitulation,
in preference .to self-sought or self inflicted -
desolation. But we then mistakably thought
wc had to encounter on enemy bound by the
rules of civilized warfare. The mask is now
thrown aside: New Orleans, Nashville, and

involves submission to. a vile and atrocious
despotism, to worse than savage barbarities,
to dfgiedalion aud insult (sparing neither
age, sex, nor condition,) and to the galling in

bid destruction and extermination welcome,
sooner than succumb to Yankee dominion,
ai d all its nameless enormities; and, if Char

[From thcN. Y. Evening Post, July22cL]
Wc have read of the flight of negroes, men,
women and children, in consequence of the
unprovoked raid upon their homes and work
shops. Wc hear of them crouching in terri
fied groups, in station houses aad cellars, in
patient duunUsslon to the heartless mobs, dis
tracted and dtimbfoonded that the civil autho
rities can afford them bat limited protection.
We are now gratified at learning that at cer
tain points of the city, quite a formidable
thow of resistance has been arranged In con
templation of further hostilities, and it is a
consolation to know that the negroes, cogni
zant of their lights as citizens, : have deter
mined to assert them in a form which will be
opt to cany conviction with It.
To this cud the colored residents of the
Sthward have been busy in fortifying and
strengthening the section which is lirgely
populated by them. This consists of parts
of Sullivan and Thompson streets, between
Broome and Grande.' At this point they have
decided to.moke a stand, .and-feci confident
that they can resist any attack which will be
made, or at least Lola ont unUU reinforce
ments shall arrive. -
It might be regarded as contraband to state
at present thonaturd or precise location of
the defenceless in question, as it is not our
purpose to betray the. operations of the color
ed men. It Is only necessary to add that they
have taken advantage of various modem ap
pliances of a warlike if any cu
rious individual of a riotous disposition de
sires to test the much mooted question,
“Will negroes fight V 1 we can only assure him
that he will, in the event of test of
the subject, havean opportunity of witnessing
the efficiency of certain fire-arms, hand-gren
ades, boiling water and brickbats, which may
be used with decided advantage from elevated
During the proceedings of. last week very
little effort was made to draw the negroes in
this section into an action, and in one or two
slight skirmishes, in which the rioters evi
dently desired to “feel of the enemy,” the
latter probably became satisfied that the po
sition was too strong, as the negro skirmish
ers caused them to skedaddle with fleas in
their ears. ...
Many of the negroes residing in the neigh
borhood mentioned, are ot on intelligent and
.industrious class, who in peaceful times have
employment in some of our largest business
establishments, ‘ Such'of these lattcras are
located up town are necessarily beyond the
lines inside, which the colored men at pre
sent venture, and they now are acting as a
home guard for the defense of their families
and property.
submissive but bsteiisqnsd.
The negroes express a desire to lire in qulc
fade, and have no disposition to Interfere with
any one, if allowed to ply their several voca
tions in peace. They, however, feelhotmd to
protect themselves and the lives of their
families, to which end they have organized to
a certain extent, and have a adopted a system
for guarding their neighborhood night and
day against surprise and attack.
The Pr<Kslavery Party of the
[From the Montreal Witness, July 23.]
The great Democratic or pro-slavery party
of the Worth, now generally called Copper
heads. and, until the defeat of Lee, glorying
in that name, has, probably, received a fatal
blow Irom the New xork ilota. It was strong
enough laet fall to elect Seymour,. Governor
of the State, but after his open sympathy
with the rioters, we doubt If he could obtain
any votes were the election now to take place,
except those of .the rowdy class, unhappily
too numerous, but not sufficiently so to carry
anv election alone. The wealthy men con
nected with the Democratic party, and they
are very numerous and very wealthy in New
York, Albany,'Boliklo, ike., must have felt'
very uncomfortable to sec the thieves aud cut
• throats of New York let loose under the aus
pices of the party to. which they belonged,
and urged on by the papers which they sus
tained. Had the enormously. wealthy mem
bers of the Democratic pro s’arery party had
their banks, stores and palaces sacked, their
eyes would have been still belter opened, but
the danger probably came near enough to in
duce them to avoid aiepetlUon of U.
The game of pretending loyalty to the
Union and a determination to press the war
whilst resisting the "Union Government,
loudly condemning its supporters, aud sym
pathizing with the rebels, must be nearly
played out. Where all the condemnation is
for the Abolitionists of the North, who are
the staunchest supporters of the Federal Gov
ernment, and none of It for the si ivehuldera
of the South who are in arms against it, the
loyalty is of a kind which any government
might well dispense with. The Roman. Cath
olic Irish too, the invariable supporters of the
Democratic pro-slavery party, and tlie bitter
haters of negroes, must have lost much ground
In public estimation.from the promineut'part
they took in the riots.' In fact the reaction
which the three days of July in New York
must have occasioned in the public mind,
may probably yet prove a great element ox
strength to the Federal Government and Re
publican or anii-alavery party. The inhuman
aud dastardly persecution of colored men also
by tbi« mob, will, probably, turn public opin
ion xnore In their favor than any event of this
war, or rather revolution, for d revolution it
must ntcissaiily be, all parties scouting alike
a return to the state of things before the war.
Seduction and Attempted Sui
[From the Illinois State Journal, July 2W-]
About slue o’clock a. m., ycatorcLiy, the
residents on cast Jefferson, between Sixth
'and Seventh streets, were alarmed, bj the re
port c-f a pistol and the cry that a woman had
shot herself. -The alarm was not without
foundation. • Nearly opposite the calaboose,
on the south side of the street, a woman was
found bleeding and lying on the sidewalk.
She was. immediately removed to the engine
house opposite, where medical assistance was
soon brought to her. Dxs. Wohlgemuth and
Million were in attendance, and discovered a
wound from a pistol shot, In the right temple,.
which they probed, but unsuccessfully, lor
the ball. The direction of the wound was up
ward and towards the back part of the head.
On examination it was found that the skull
had not' been- fractured. The patient was
Bubseqocnily.removed to the county house,
where she now lies under the treatment of Or. i
Million, county physician. ‘
There are many conflicting reports as to the
motives which actuated her in this deliberate
attempt at self-destruction. • The truth seems
to be that she had contracted an intimacy with
a soldier named Albert S. Robinson, alias
( 'Otc,” who had held oat to hera promise of
marriage—having previously assured bur tliat
he was an unmarried man. Robinson’s wife
and child having lately arrived in the city, the
victim of his treachery was of coarse shut
ofct from all hope of the union which she had
been induced to expect. Yesterday morniog
the vitited the county jail, .where Robinson Is
confined on a grave' charge—assaalt with la
tent to commit murder—and alter a few min
ute’s Interview, withdrew. Some thirty or
forty feet from the jail, she committed the act
which has placed her, a broken-hearted, too
confiding & creature, in the helpless condition
of on impotent self destroyer.. Her name is
Zorelda Britt. tVhen placed on a stretcher in
the engine house, she said “Let me die. I
have bees brought to this by the treachery of
men. Ido not wiahto live any longer.” Sub
sequently, when being removed to the county
house, she expressed a desire to live, that she
might persecute her seducer.
The unfortunate girl has lately been living
as a servant in some of the most respectable
families of the city. A few weeks ago her
lather, who is said to reside In Missouri, traced
her to this place and entreated her to return
home, but to no purpose. The way ward pas
sion she had conceived for the faithless vil
lain who had seduced her, overruled her sense
of duty and of the obligations due to parental
authority and advice.

baa a most depressing effect on tbe spirit..
The universal mourning worn by the women
haunts yon even in yonr. sleep,. and yon fed

There is no sacrifice to which they will not

From the Princess Sapieha to the petty trades .
rtian’s wife, they devote themaclcs heart and
soul to the cause, slaving night and day at

rescuing captives, and performing other
heroic acts. 'Combined with this power of
